Rachel Bennett attended her ten-year high school reunion on a whim, but fate intervened once she saw Shane MacLeod. No longer the shy, gawky teenager she remembered, Shane has matured into a handsome and successful man, but her perfect evening ends when another man from her past suddenly reappears.

Craig Walker had been her mentor until he became jealous of her talent and success. Now he intends to either have her, or destroy her at all costs.

As Rachel’s family pressures her to take Craig to court, she can no longer ignore her nagging feeling that a tragedy is about to strike.

10 Things I’ve Learned Being a Published Author


I don’t know if I can come up with 10, but here’s what I’ve learned being a published author.

Most authors are not famous. Very few become household names. Fewer still become rich and famous. Most authors are everyday people, and many, if not most, have day jobs. Oftentimes our royalty payments aren’t much more than beer money. We’re in this business because we have stories to tell, and we love what we do.

The first thing anyone needs to understand about this business is that not every reader is going to like our books. Not because they’re poorly written, but because our book simply isn’t their cup of tea, and they may even post a bad review on Amazon. Worrying about these people is a complete waste of time. You’re much better off focusing your time and energy on those who do like your book.

And speaking of bad reviews–they can actually work in your favor as they make you look more real. Readers may be wary of an author who only has four and five star reviews.

About Marina Martindale

Marina Martindale Pic

Just like Gillian Matthews, the heroine in her debut romance novel, The Reunion, Marina Martindale began her career as a graphic designer and artist, and several of her paintings have been featured in juried art shows. Over time, however, she discovered writing was her true life’s passion.

“I love creating conflicted characters,” says Martindale. “I think they’re more like the people we meet in real life. I also like the complexity of romance. It’s an opportunity to delve deep into the human condition and try to understand what it is that motivates us to make the choices in life that we make.”

Martindale draws her inspiration from her own real life experiences, as well as those of the people around her. The stories, however, are fiction.

“The path to true love is never an easy one,” adds Martindale. “Some are haunted by people from their past. Others have been deceived or betrayed by the people they trusted the most. We all make bad choices, even though we usually don’t realize it at the time. My stories are about the unintended consequences of those bad choices, how the characters resolve them, and how they grow and become better people as a result.”

Marina Martindale resides in Tucson, Arizona. In her spare time she enjoys music, traveling, photography, and cooking.
